A search resumed this morning in an Argyll loch for a young man missing after the boat he was in capsized on Saturday afternoon.
Two of the missing man’s friends were rescued on Saturday afternoon from an island in the Loch.
The men aged 23 and 27, who have not been named by police, were taken to Lorn and Islands Hospital, in Oban where they were later discharged.
But the third member of the party, also 23, is still missing this morning.
A full scale, land and water search by emergency services and the Coastguard helicopter on Loch Awe took place throughout Saturday evening and all day Sunday to find the missing man. They were assisted by locals in small vessels scouring the lochside for the 23 year old.
Police confirmed it will continue this morning – with specialist teams on site to assist in locating the man.
More than 20 boats and RIBs turned out on Saturday and Sunday to help with the search.
Loch Awe is the third largest fresh water loch in Scotland. Searches have focused on the “top end” of the loch near to Kilchurn Castle and the village of Dalmally.
The small pleasure-type fishing boat, from which it is believed the young men were fishing from, was retrieved from the water near Innishail Island around 3pm on Sunday afternoon.
A police spokeswoman said: “About 4.40pm on Saturday afternoon we received a call about a boat capsizing in Loch Awe.
“Police, fire and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency attended following report of a boat in difficulty with three men on board.
“Two men, aged 23 and 27 years, managed to swim to nearby island where they raised the alarm and were rescued and taken by ambulance to Oban Hospital. Both men have now been discharged from hospital.
“The multi-agency search for the third man, aged 23 years, which involves specialist police search teams and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, continued throughout Sunday.
Oban and Inveraray Coastguard Rescue Teams, Appin Inshore Rescue Team and HM Coastguard search and rescue helicopter based at Inverness were involved over the weekend in carrying out a search for the missing person, along with Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and local Mountain Rescue Teams.
